Perhaps Christian Bale just flat out bailed on the untitled Terrence Malick romantic drama that was set to begin filming in October. But was the big screen Batman replaced by Ben Affleck?
Numerous reports cite Ben Affleck taking over the role Christian Bale was supposed to play in a film that also reportedly features Javier Bardem (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes) and Rachel Weisz (The Lovely Bones).
Bale was reportedly cast to portray a fisherman in this Malick movie, and the Boston Herald said Affleck was in an Oklahoma Bass Pro Shops store last week purchasing fishing gear with his wife Jennifer Garner and two daughters.
Now perhaps it’s a Christian Bale bias we have here at Batman Movie News and Rumors, but getting replaced in a film by Ben Affleck is akin to being kicked in the gonads.

“I need you like Ben Affleck needs acting school. He was terrible in that film“.
